Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Trying the Tyrant

Robert Alt claims that the Supreme Court’s decision permitting anyone in the custody of the United States to seek a writ of habeas corpus in a U.S. federal court could lead to a media circus in Saddam’s trial, which starts tomorrow. All this sounds too ridiculous to be true, but who knows, Robert may be right. Another movie for Michael Moore?

I guess the lesson here is to not take prisoners!

If we do capture someone let the Mossad take them for interrogation. The ultimate outsourcing plan!

Now that Saddam is technically in Iraqi custody... SCOTUS will probably rule that he can still file suit in the 9th District.
